Ryan Newman has walked out of the hospital!

Ryan Newman has been released from the hospital, just days after a horrific crash at the end of the Daytona 500 Monday.

This is a great update because remember his car was spun out as he led the last lap, then hit the wall and flipped. He was then hit by another car before flipping several more times and catching fire, all at 200 miles per hour!  Newman was showing “great improvement,” according to an earlier update from his team.

A few hours later, Roush Fenway Racing shared a photo of Newman leaving the hospital, along with his daughters, under his own power.  The extent of his injuries haven’t been publicly announced.
